Decanta Tapas Bar

Reviewed By KieranC471

We ordered the lamb thanks and tapas mushrooms. The sharks were so tenderly and perfectly cooked the meat fell off the bone and the accompanying gravy was delightfully tasty. We were drinking a Mission Estate Syrah which was recommended by the staff and complimented the meal wonderfully. The service was prompt and friendly and the atmosphere for dinner very welcoming.

Reviewed By Shariquickenden

We have been to this location for years, even before it was Manou’s. The views and location is an absolute advantage. We visited on the 13th of January for lunch and dinner. The meals were outstanding. Especially the dinner. I had the grilled kingfish on top of a salad. I was worried it might not be filling enough with no carbs, but it was perfect. The salad ingredients were fresh and tantalising and the fish was extraordinary. The decor is a bit dated, but with good food, service, and views, it is absolutely worth going.

Fabulous just fabulous from the food to the service. I’ve not been here since the new owners took over however I can happily report that standards have remained high, in fact I would say they have reached new glorious heights. With the spectacular sea views to the magnificent service, smiles all round. I applaud the staff they are so happy and truly appreciative of serving. You are made to feel at hone as soon as you walk through the door until you leave. The food is gorgeous just gorgeous. I had a cake good portion and exceeding flavoursome. They say you eat with your eyes and nose, all I can say is thank goodness you don’t put weight on in the same way, because you wouldn’t stand a chance. I highly, highly recommend a visit.

A MUST try here is "The Little Fed Hash" it's the meanest way to have bacon bones, spinach, potato hash and poached eggs. The flavor is so good, staff service is very friendly and it's a cosy casual atmosphere. Thanks Little Fed, we'll be back

Reviewed By The_bald_gourmet

The restaurant is located in the Novotel and has a modern and energetic vibe. The food was outstanding. The ceviche was fresh and went perfectly with the crisp rice crackers and sliced pickled onion. The lamb was expertly cooked and went really well with the slow cooked carrots and extra side of potatoes. The cuisine has a slightly "nouveau" look and the portions are not large. The flavors however are robust and well balanced. Service was professional fast and welcoming. Overall this is an excellent restaurant and a great choice if you're staying at the Novotel.Thank you so much for taking the take to provide feedback about our wonderful restaurant.

Reviewed By purplekiwi76

We were visiting on a Monday so it wasn't too busy. Despite having a booking our table wasn't set up for the 5 of us, none the less the staff were very accommodating. They were a bit over the top if I were honest, trying a bit too much. Food was really good though so would definitely come back
